The Beyond the Surface look at the Production Process – How Marmoleum is Creating a Better Environment
A quick look behind marmoleum’s beauty into the production process shows how Marmoleum cares for your home and the environment.
The process begins with a commitment to renewable natural ingredients. Linseed Oil is pressed from the seeds of the flax plant. Wood flour is obtained from the lumber industry waste (or the old school, non-techy term – “sawdust”) and from controlled forests. Rosins are harvested from pine trees.
The stunning colors of Marmoleum are achieved by using environmentally responsible pigments. The backing of is woven with natural jute fibers. Even the adhesives used for installation are environmentally responsible and free of solvents.
The end result of this thought out, earth friendly production process is a flooring solution that actually strengthens over time. Plus at the end of it’s long and productive life, Marmoleum is completely biodegradable.
Marmoleum’s inherent anti-static properties repel dust and dirt, making it easy to clean, reducing exposure to allergens and contributing to a healthy indoor air quality.
